British Airways has announced that passengers on flights between Manchester and New York City will soon be able to purchase flat bed seats.
The seats will be located in a premium economy cabin and will be more expensive than a standard economy airfare.
Passengers in this new section will also be given priority meals and drinks and have more choices for in-flight entertainment.
The new flat beds are scheduled to go into service in February of 2006.
Currently many airlines offer the flat bed option in business and first class, but British Airways is seeking to be one of the first to offer it in a premium economy section.
BA’s commercial director Steve Cassidy said the new beds would redefine long-haul travel.
